Producers John Wells and Don Murphy, through their respective companies John Wells Productions and Angryfilms, have teamed to option rights to independent comic “The Forgotten.”
Wells will produce with his company’s president, Claire Polstein. Angryfilms’ Susan Montford also is producing.
The comic, co-created by Evan Young and Jareth Grealish, centers on a man who, no matter what he does or whom he meets, is forgotten five minutes later. While it gives him great power and leeway as far as investigations and problem-solving, it leaves him incredibly alone. When the son of a long-lost friend is charged wrongly with murder, he uses his powers to get to the bottom of a conspiracy.
